Weekend Update with MCM: 3/9/2013

USA TODAY Sports

Today may be the penultimate moment in the 2012 season for Baylor Men's Basketball, as the Bears have one final chance to make a statement at home against #4/3 Kansas.

We'll start today with the biggest event going: Baylor takes on Kansas at home beginning at 5:00 PM CST. Given that Spring Break "began" today, I'm not hopeful for a great fan reaction and/or presence at today's game, but I can always be surprised. I've said multiple times that every realistic chance Baylor has of making the NCAA Tournament is all but gone at this point with only today's game remaining between us and the Big 12 Tournament next week. The winner of that tournament obviously gets an automatic bid, so it's possible, we've just never done it before.

Before that game at 5:00, however, our Lady Bears take on Kansas State, who beat Texas to earn the pleasure, at 2:30 PM on FSN. For most viewers, that means the game will be aired on Fox Sports Southwest. If you can make it to Dallas, tickets are still available for that game and the matchup to follow. Baylor is a heavy favorite.
